Flash Fiction Friday – September 30, 2016

Flash Fiction Friday

Flash Fiction: There isn’t a standard specific definition for this term beyond “short”, but for the purposes of this “Flash Fiction Friday” post it will mean a precisely 100-word story scene (aka Drabble) written from a photo prompt.

Today’s prompt picture is:

This drabble is another addition to my Adventures with Harrison and Mason collection.

“It’s beautiful!” Mason gushed. It was a beautiful gesture, even if the cake didn’t…quite look like the ones on Pinterest.

Jaxon bounced, and his ear-to-ear smile lit the room. “Daddy helped, but I did most of it.”

Harrison kissed Mason. “Happy Birthday.”

“We baked and baked all day,” Jaxon said. “It was so much fun. Maybe I’ll be a baker when I grow up.”

Mason leaned down and lifted Jaxon in his arms. His gaze landed on the colossal pile of dishes in the sink.

“I love you,” Mason whispered into Jaxon’s ear, but he smiled into his husband’s eyes.
